Juniper Ridge is built on the idea that nothing smells better from the forest. In the words of founder Hall Newbegin, “I’ve never worn perfume but I’ve always seen the world through my nose,” so he turned his love of hiking into a full-fledged fragrance company. Each product has a harvest number, which corresponds to the plants and fragrance extraction techniques used, and is named for the wild places they come from. Ten percent of all profits are annually donated to a portfolio of Western Wilderness Defense organizations.
Sweetgrass grows in high elevation, alpine meadows throughout the West. Its unique, vanilla-like scent and centering, relaxing energy make it one of the most beloved of all western plants for smudging.
To use, uncoil loop, light tip and blow out flame, let smolder to release scent. When finished, extinguish under water or sand.
